“Journeying Through Genesis”: a Beit Midrash for English Speakers With Rabbi Helen Bar-Yaacov
Har-El member Rabbi Helen Bar-Yaacov invites you to a Beit Midrash for English speakers titled: “Journeying Through Genesis”, held every Tuesday from 4:30-6 PM in the sanctuary.
Journeying Through Genesis
This is a study of the Book of Beresheet/Genesis, looking at the historical, social, geographical, economic aspects of that time. We will be using archaeology and anthropology as well as midrash, both legal and narrative, and will also be comparing the English translation(s) to the original Hebrew, to see whether that translation is correct, and how the meaning might be changed….
The study group will be conducted in English, but non-native English speakers are equally welcome.
